Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are toasting to their new wine, possibly with the new rosé itself. The engaged power couple is releasing a vintage pink rosé from their 1,000-acre French estate on March 15 in the United States. It will be the first offering from their vineyard, which they acquired in 2008. The name of the wine? Miraval, the same name as their Chateau Miraval in Correns, France. The vineyard's predecessor had been called Pink Floyd -- the band recorded its album "The Wall" in studios on the estate grounds.

Like a mid-season coaching hire for a losing ballclub, director Bennett Miller inherited an uphill battle when he was brought in as the director of a shaky project called "Moneyball," but he had two key players on his side — and both of them were named Brad Pitt. With its half-dozen Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations, "Moneyball" is now viewed as a quality contender in the Oscar nomination race, but the sports-film-with-a-message was clearly a longshot project back when Miller stepped in following the summer 2009 departure of Steven Soderbergh, who had spent years developing the script.

This weekend, the foundation released photographs of Gehry's contribution to the project. Gehry is one of 21 architects who are contributing their talent to Pitt's project. Among the other architects are a few prominent L.A. names -- Hitoshi Abe, Thom Mayne and Pugh + Scarpa. The foundation is aiming to build 150 houses for people affected by the hurricane.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie -- who still aren't breaking up -- on Thursday won their privacy claim against News of the World, the British tabloid that in January reported they'd visited a divorce attorney and negotiated an agreement to split. The News of the World, owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., has agreed to publish an apology, as well as pay an undisclosed sum to cover the couple's costs and damages, the BBC reports. The money will be donated to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, the actors' charity.

Kirsten Dunst thought kissing Brad Pitt was disgusting. Hopefully, Angelina Jolie doesn't agree. As for the reason she's bashing the onetime sexiest man alive's tonsil-hockey skills? Well, she was 11, for starters, when she played an undead woman trapped in a child's body in "Interview With the Vampire. " And kissing in general is pretty darn gross to 11-year-olds, if we remember our human development correctly. "It was just a peck," Dunst told Bullett magazine, while attempting to promote her latest film, "Upside Down," a fantasy drama with Jim Sturgess.
